Schedule your wellness exam (for patients)
Take time for your health – schedule a wellness exam!
A wellness exam is an important annual health checkup. It provides an opportunity for your doctor to evaluate your overall health and establish a baseline of your health condition. This helps your doctor (and you) be aware of changes in your health, schedule preventive screenings and more. It also is a good time to discuss concerns or changes in your health with your doctor.
You should also talk to your doctor about the following health checks:
- Blood pressure check
- Healthy weight/BMI
- Cholesterol test
- Diabetic prevention or diabetes checkup, including eye exam
- Flu vaccine
- Colorectal cancer screening
- Breast cancer screenings/mammogram
- Cervical cancer screening
Being proactive can save your life! Schedule a wellness exam today.
